Another beginning reader about everyone's favorite Big Red Dog, based on an episode from the award-winning TV show. Clifford can't stop scratching an itch on his back. He even rubs his back against an apple tree — until all the apples fall! Emily Elizabeth wants to take him to the vet, but he doesn't want to go. Finally he learns to trust her, and the vet helps make it all better. Funny and touching, this Big Red Reader is just right for beginning readers.
